Gold for Xilium: we are the winners of German Innovation Award 2019

Xilium’s comprehensive innovation has now been proven with gold – the Nowy Styl Group has won the German Innovation Award 2019 in the Office Solution category for its unique Xilium chair family from Rohde & Grahl.

The 2019 GOLD German Innovation Award was officially presented by the German Design Council at an award ceremony held at the German Museum of Technology in Berlin on 28 May 2019. This is the second such award we received from the jury, this time for our product’s unique innovation (the Xilium family of chairs had been awarded the German Design Award at the beginning of the year).

More than a chair

The German Innovation Award is not awarded for “ordinary” novelties, but goes exclusively to products that stand out with their focus on the user and a clear advantage over previous solutions. Xilium won in the key evaluation areas: “the level of innovation, benefits for the user and value". The jury’s decision was also based on the innovation strategy, the rational use of energy and resources, the durability of the chair, the maturity of the market, technical quality, function, material and synergy effects. All these factors determined the verdict, according to which Xilium is in the group of the best products.

Martin Ballendat, the chair’s designer said: “This is an especially important award for me, because it is not just any award but GOLD – the German award for innovation. Thereby, the innovative line of chairs with the patented X-MOVE technology has once again received significant and due recognition.”


Focus on innovation

The best way of sitting? Your way! – is the catchphrase of the Xilium office chair family designed to meet users’ daily needs. With its multiple adjustment options, the swivel chair adapts perfectly to individual user preferences in terms of height, weight, working style and sitting habits. At the same time, the line clearly provides greater comfort and helps users stay in good health. This is made possible by the X-MOVE system which allows dynamic lateral movements, while simultaneously activating a gentle rotational movement in the lumbar area. In addition, the multifunctional armrests integrated with the seat and adjustable by 360° make using mobile devices much more convenient.

“Only a comprehensive look at the biomechanics of the human body opens the way for dynamic sitting and significantly reduces the negative consequences of prolonged sitting for your health. Xilium is an extremely smart innovation which harmoniously combines ergonomics, functionality and modern elegance with contemporary design, while supporting the efficiency and creativity of users” says Karolina Manikowska, Director of the Workplace Research and Consulting Department and Deputy Director of the Product Management Department.
